The nurse who called to cancel my FET told me to expect my period within the week. That was last Saturday and I have been not so patiently waiting for over a week. So, yesterday I finally sent my nurse an email asking if there was anything I could do to speed the process up. She called me back and told me that the other nurse was wrong, since I ovulated it will probably be two weeks instead of one. Also, there is nothing I can do to speed anything up, I just need to keep waiting and call her on day one. Now I am looking at the beginning of November for the transfer. I should just expect by now after 6 years that nothing infertility-related will work out as planned. It’s funny, I must be quite the optimist because for some reason I’m still expecting the best.
Let me explain my extreme frustration over waiting a few more months. One of the reasons we decided to wait a year and a half after the miscarriage was to get the timing just right (something I thought with IVF we could actually have control over). We live in a ski resort town and it’s really busy during the winter so it would be hard for both me and the hubby to swing time off work if we had a baby then. Also, the summers here are BEAUTIFUL and if I did the transfer in August/September I could be off for the 3 most awesome months. Another reason is the first trimester would be over before the holidays. The year I had the miscarriage it was awful to go through all of that in November/December/January when so much else is going on. I’m going to my parents house for Thanksgiving this year and I had big plans that if this worked I would be 3 months by then and could share my big news. Now, I will be lucky to be done with my two-week wait and if it’s positive I will be there at the most stressful time waiting for the ultrasound. If it’s negative I will be devastated and won’t be in the fun Thanksgiving mood at all.
All that aside, this was on MSN homepage this morning:
I guess I should consider myself fortunate to add two more months to the childless time line (should this FET work) to do all of the fun things you can’t do with children 🙂 . Actually, I’m starting Wednesday, we have tickets to the baseball games Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon and a hotel room downtown in the BIG city. Should be a great distraction from the AF wait.
